Wine Description

An elegant wine with aromatics of plum and ripe berries finishing with subtle spice.

Vineyards

The vineyards are found in a variation in meso-climates, exposed hills, and sheltered valleys, with soils from Granite, Sandstone soils and Alluvial soils. Grapes are picked from a selection of these different wards in the Western Cape.

Winemaking Techniques

The grapes were cold soaked for two days. After traditional skin fermentation, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in French oak staves for 10 months.

Vintage Conditions

The 2022 season will be remembered for the initial cool weather conditions that made ripening very slow. Phenolic ripeness occurred later and that lead to longer maturation time in the vineyards, creating exciting wines that are full and complex.
